Irish interests in the forthcoming Oscars ceremony could not be higher as U2 and Daniel Day-Lewis get the nod from the Academy and Gangs of New York gets 10 nominations.
Irish eyes could be smiling at the imminent Academy Awards ceremony as the Martin Scorsese (who is also up for Best Director) movie Gangs of New York gets 10 nominations.
The movie, with deep Irish roots, could see gold for Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor and the boys from U2 for Best Original Song.
Day-Lewis performance as Bill ’The Butcher’ Poole has been touted by critics as his best since his last Oscar winning performance as Dubliner Christy Brown in My Left Foot.
U2’s song The Hands that Built America is up against songs by Eminem and Paul Simon.
